Wow, guess now it's time to work on my second calling.

Financially, this reads like the relationship between a pimp and a whore. House fees, tip outs, etc. Sounds to me like these women are getting taken advantage of. Where are those feminazis when you need them?

"Dance sensual, not sexual." Considering they are naked, what is the difference?

"The customers are NOT allowed to touch you in anyway. You are also not allowed to...sexually touch the customers."
Yeah right. Besides, they have to make up those house fees, late fees, and tip offs somewhere.
2002-09-02 12:18:31 PM  
Always remember, there is NO SEX in the champagne room.

Thanx El Cerdo Loco

I thought that stupid song had been long forgetten and you had to bring that monstrosity back into minds of hundreds of farkers....Sigh...

2002-09-02 03:23:03 PM  
Glad to be of service.

It makes perfect sense to me. I've worked in lots of restaurants that have much more complicated employee training manuals.

And I don't think it is rare to require tip-outs of a certain percentage to various support people that otherwise don't make tips. Waiting tables we always tipped bartenders, barbacks, the expo in the kitchen, hostess (sometimes), etc.

Remember that strip clubs are businesses - I saw lots of references in the manual to "keeping the customer happy" You would think that would be easy with nude or mostly nude women around, but some customers are just assholes.

"Remember, we're selling a fantasy..." Sounds like the guy probably worked for a couple of dot coms.

I've known several strippers and even with all of the fees and fines, they were making some serious cash.
2002-09-02 04:55:09 PM  
If you are not on the roster, DO NOT SHOW UP. If you want to work, call housemom BEFORE SHIFT and ask if there is room for you.

...lest our strip club be overrun with naked women.
2002-09-02 04:55:48 PM  
No wonder strippers are so money hungry, they are basically out of $100 before they even start their shifts.
2002-09-02 04:56:49 PM  
I would like to charge my staff when they come in late. THAT would be awesome!
2002-09-02 04:57:02 PM  
"No red or brown showers."

God, I hope not... It just bothers me that they wouldn't have to say it unless someone had done it.

Mandatory employee meeting in the Champagne Room.

For some reason that just cracks me up.
2002-09-02 04:59:30 PM  
Oops... Maybe I'll check my html tags before I post next time.
2002-09-02 05:00:04 PM  
Tell you what...YOU scan the manual, I will scan the employees.

Rik, that made me laugh really, really hard. I think it's time to go home.
2002-09-02 05:00:46 PM  
120$ dollars buys you 100 "golden dollars" - what a deal!
2002-09-02 05:02:17 PM  
That was nothing. I helped this girl prepare for an inteview with this place in Austin. They had this test, like the GRE of strip clubs. This thing made many of my college exams look like a cake walk.
2002-09-02 05:06:07 PM  
I once found out a friend of mine was stripping for a living. I went into the club with a roll of pennies and began throwing them at her one by one, but only when no one could see me throwing the pennies. Eventually my friend gave me half of her tips to leave. I came back the next nite with her brother and did the same thing. Only it didn't go as planned, after we threw the last penny from the second roll, the bouncers came and showed us the parking lot!!!! ah the life of those crazy wacky strippers looking up to the Anna Nicole Smiths of the world!
2002-09-02 05:06:14 PM  

Did the test say something like,

"If nipple A is tweaking at 40 mph and nipple B is tweaking at 50 mph, how much money will the customer spend before he realizes that the girls don't even remotely like him?"
2002-09-02 05:06:57 PM  
I don't have any rules! come work for me!
2002-09-02 05:08:17 PM  
"Dance sensual, not sexual. We are selling a fantasy. NO TOUCHING!"

What a crock! Why do you New Englanders put up with that crap?! Suckers!

In most of Texas, you get to have sex with that perfect 10 hottie in the dark areas and the champagne room!
2002-09-02 05:08:49 PM  
The penny thing was stupid. If you cant act like an adult, for your own saftey, stay out of the club.
On the other hand....I wish my tip outs from Deja Vu in Vegas were as cheap as "Tens". At least I did not have to wear sequins. Ever.
2002-09-02 05:09:28 PM  
Mzdizzi: You sound like a real fun gal.
2002-09-02 05:11:38 PM  
Ok...not to sound like a total maroon...but what's a "red shower"?
2002-09-02 05:13:43 PM  
Bathroom attendants supply food? For some reason I don't think I'd have a problem avoiding it.
2002-09-02 05:13:54 PM  
One of the restaurants I used to work at was next door to a huge strip club. The bartenders/managers/dancers from there would come over and eat lunch at our place. We'd go over to their place for drinks after work.

It was a good thing.

HollandRivers - did you work as a stripper? Waitress? Inquiring minds and all.
2002-09-02 05:15:24 PM  

Nice education you got in Texas, huh? New York is not in New England.


Ten Gallon Retard.
2002-09-02 05:15:48 PM  
Stripper.......all the way through skool. Yes, its true, some of us really do that dancing our way through college thingie! Now I have a degree and run a prOn site, go figure.
2002-09-02 05:17:58 PM  
Red Shower

watch your mouth about Texas God

that's funny.
2002-09-02 05:19:33 PM  
What school did you go to that taught you how to spell school?
2002-09-02 05:19:44 PM  
Gosh, folks have it tough when they don't live in Quebec.
2002-09-02 05:19:47 PM  
Cool, we lost a lot of good bartenders to the strip club next store. The pay was a lot better, etc. They were usually college students, too. I don't remember them having to take a test to work there, but the money was good enough that you had to earn the privelege to work on the good nights.

Is the site in your profile yours?
2002-09-02 05:20:14 PM  
The only thing bad about the good strip clubs are all the whooping idiots in them.
2002-09-02 05:20:15 PM an ass.
2002-09-02 05:21:25 PM

Unless you're in Houston.

It sucks to live here.
2002-09-02 05:22:29 PM  
for my saftey, hmmm that sounds screwy coming from someone who walks around with a strip of lycra up their arse in front of drunk horny men for a living, and thinks its a very big deal that she never had to wear sequins Ever!
2002-09-02 05:22:48 PM  
What do you suppose they talk about in those manditory staff meetings at 4AM? I'll bet they cover some pretty serious topics....
2002-09-02 05:22:49 PM  
I wouldn't say that....exactly ;)
2002-09-02 05:23:32 PM  
HollandRivers: Deja Vu in Las Vegas? Jeez, I've probably met you.
2002-09-02 05:24:20 PM  
Yea, BAKup, Houston does suck. The clubs there are a total ripoff.

JohnDX....I went to Kent State University for 2 years, then to UNLV. I spell skool like that as a result of a bad inside joke. Sorry.
Bartending in clubs is pretty lucrative from what I understand. Money flows pretty freely in those establishments. Good eye candy as well.
The site is in my profile. Some of those broads you see work at my studio every day.

Mzdizzi....Kiss my *arse*, your boyfriend still loves me!
2002-09-02 05:32:08 PM  
About the only real 'rule' I can remember from going to various clubs was don't mess with the girls. The rule was enforced by rather large men and/or off duty police officers.

For my safety, I wouldn't throw pennies at anyone :-)

and thanks, Holland, I'll check it out.
2002-09-02 05:33:09 PM  
Mzdizzi...what a great friend you are. When the going gets tough, your friends can rely on you to behave like a total jackass.
2002-09-02 05:35:07 PM  
actually my husband is the one who taught me about the penny thing when we were in the army together!
2002-09-02 05:35:08 PM  

A patron buys 100 Golden Dollars for $120...

And when the stripper cashes them in, the club keeps 10 percent.

Double-dip much?

No wonder they want the strippers to encourage those purchases...
2002-09-02 05:36:55 PM  
Yeah FluffyPancakes.....that one :) Did you work there too, if you did we most likely know eachother!
2002-09-02 05:37:17 PM  
Wow. This "Tens" place is stricter than Camwhores! And they don't tip as well, either!

Seriously, strip clubs frighten me. The girls are so mercenary (unless they're giving massages). You'll have to ask Drew about that.
2002-09-02 05:40:30 PM  
Holland is YOUR pic on that site by any chance?

I really don't care if you can't spell, as long as you look as good as I think you do ;-)
2002-09-02 05:40:51 PM  
An ex-girlfriend of mine once worked as a shotgirl in a strip is some advice to those guys that frequent regularly...

Don't wear your minor league baseball/softball uniforms into the club. These girls are NOT turned on by them. If you are really good looking, the girls won't approach you much because chances are--you're not desperate and thus won't spend much.
